Be careful if you try the Yancey. If the current starts rippin you will be in trouble. Time it right and you will be ok. Martin

Thanks for the report.
One thing is for sure..some of them don't know and don't give a crab about nothing. Were you far away from the rocks, lesss than 50ft.?
I like to place several dive flags in the water on a rope from the boat to close to my diving area on my way in. Last time I was there a few came right to the rope but never went over it, maybe they know rope in prop. = mucho $$

See ya in the water.

We were probably seventy five feet from the rocks with one flag up and a buoy on a rope behind the boat.. I should post the name of the charter boat that cut through

Next time make it as hard as you can for a boat to go between yours and the rocks, not only it can make it safer for you but also you know how hard it can get to and from if the current starts to rip with fish, gun/gear. The line out from the stern can be a life saver if you miss your boat with a load on you because of the strong current, you'll be out and over the tube and away from land/rocks in just a few minutes and then...where did he go? Have you seen a diver pass you just now? [wink]
